GYROKINESIS® Lotus Blossom Courses

The GYROKINESIS® Lotus Blossom courses were originally developed by Juliu Horvath as part of his GYROKINESIS® Rejuvenation Course, and in 2013 were introduced as independent courses. In this course, students learn a new 1 hour and 15 minutes GYROKINESIS® floor sequence, and a 30 minute, standing nerve strengthening sequence. The floor sequence consists of a floor version of the seated spinal motions, in addition to level 1 and intermediate level floor sequences. The Nerve Strengthening Sequence is a special treasure that Juliu developed many years ago and is re-introducing as part of the new Lotus Blossom #1 Course. The Nerve Strengthening Sequence can be incorporated with the Lotus Blossom #1 Class format, and can also be incorporated with any GYROKINESIS® level class format.

The entire Lotus Blossom #1 course is accompanied by a custom music score that has been developed by Juliu Horvath and Rodolfo Troncoso specifically for this class format. The music in the course has been created in such a way that it resonates with the intention of each movement sequence.

Course manuals, and a music download option are included with the course. In addition, the GYROKINESIS® Lotus Blossom #1 DVD will be available for purchase, exclusively to course participants.

This course satisfies the licensing update requirement for Level 1 Trainers.

Online registration is closed. Please contact the business for details.

About Erika Hassan

Erika met Juliu Horvath in NYC when she moved there in 1993 to study dance. She had only been dancing for a couple of years and whereas her technique consisted mainly of equal parts force and desire, she was extremely grateful to find a teacher who could guide her into the inner-workings of her own dance. She trained intensively with Juliu for 5 years in the  GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. With her new movement vocabulary, she went on to perform with Maureen Fleming, Jennifer Muller/The Works, Zen Companhia de Danca, Min Tanaka and Meftas Dance Theater. Erika is currently Associate Artistic Director of Soulskin Dance and a Specialized  GYROTONIC® and  GYROKINESIS® Master Trainer. She travels the world teaching workshops and cannot wait to visit Sarasota, FL to share her trainings with you!
